Distribute ILI Surveillance

This is an interesting project developed by the International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS).   This application is a step in the right direction to provide national disease surveillance although it only focuses on ILI.  The following description is from the Distribute website:

Distribute, a project of the International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS), is a distributed, influenza surveillance system that uses summarized, influenza like illness (ILI) syndrome data from existing visit level syndromic surveillance systems developed by public health agencies. It is dedicated to real-time data evaluation, allowing for more rapid surveillance and improved decision making. This project utilizes anonymous visit count data submitted from a variety of public health departments and organizations, in conjunction with Google charts and visualizations and a web services tool kit developed at the University of Washington named Shoki, to generate a real-time display of summarized daily data.
